Summary: The addition of a subwoofer does enhance the sound making it more complete. It awakens the listener to the presence of bass elements in the song, but quickly becomes clear that the bass is insufficient. As others have mentioned, the subwoofer is not adjustable.
Summary: Bass isn't so great compared to other speakers in the general price range. Also, the bass speaker is on the bottom of the small/very light bass unit and is unprotected and can be very easily damaged if kicked over by kids/pets or restless legs. Maybe try the Insignia NS-PCS41?
Better than expected sound overall but lacks in highs and lows

Summary: I got this product as a downgrade from the next step up in speakers from these guys to save space and get less booming bass. Instead I got wayyyyy less bass. There appears to be no happy medium between the two in price-point. It's either too much bass or not enough.
Summary: This was so affordable and I have been listening to my music on these speakers for like 12 hours a day for about 6 months now, and I couldn't be happier! The cute little subwoofer makes this speaker set sound really nice, people area always surprised when I tell them how cheap these speakers were.
Summary: I got a pair of these when i moved to my new house in Lake Elsinore in jan. 2010 and they have been nothing but awesome since then. they've taken EVERYTHING ive thrown at them from rap, dubstep, jazz, piano, classical, indy, ANYTHING and they always sound awesome, crisp, and beautiful.
Summary: your not gonna get room shaking bass or huge out from these.. that said for 25$ you not gonna find much better ive had a pair for 3 years and they do the job in a small to medium size room. great for use with computer system and dont need alot....
Summary: I'm not really quite an audiophile just yet, but I appreciate good quality sound from high quality equipment. Wanted to get a high quality sound system for my dorm room last year, but that wasn't in the budget, and this is what I came home with for my laptop.
Summary: We've had this Altec Lansing BXR1221 2.1 Speaker System for around 3+ years now, and are quite pleased with the sound quality for the price point. We use this system to play mp3 music in one large room, and this does well for that purpose.
Summary: The product is a decent one considering the price. Not a "bang for buck" but not a rip off either. Performance was decent until the the expiry of the warranty period. Yes, one of the speaker just died a few days after the expiry of return period. Now I'm stuck with this.
